If the Kardashian-Jenners are good at one thing, it’s knowing how to plan elaborate and luxurious vacations.
Whether they’re lounging beachside in Punta Mita, Mexico or catching the season’s hottest shows at Paris Fashion Week, the Kardashians often shell out thousands of dollars to house, feed, and entertain all members of the family while they’re away.
Even when just a few members of the Kardashian family go on vacation, they make sure to do it in style.
We looked at how much money the Kardashians have spent on past vacations, from how they travel to where they stay and the food they eat.
Here’s how much it costs to vacation like a Kardashian.
HOW THEY TRAVEL…
In 2018, it was reported that Kim and Kanye traveled on vacation via a private double-decker Boeing 747.
In a series of Instagram videos, Kim showed the exterior and interior of the plane, which seats up to 660 people and features luxury bedrooms, bathrooms, a dining room, and an office.
Kardashian was quite obviously excited to travel on the luxury jet, as she can be heard saying, "So this is what a private 747 is like, you guys. I’ve never been on one before so I’m like ‘Oh my god!"
"The particular plane Kanye and Kim were on is privately owned. As such, we can only estimate as to the cost required to operate it, but it’s in the neighborhood of $200,000 per hour. To put it in perspective, Air Force One is a 747-200, a slightly bigger version of the same model, and costs about $250,000 an hour to operate," Adam Twidel, CEO of PrivateFly, explained.
This extravagant mode of transportation is over-the-top — even for the Kardashians. Most Kardashian vacations begin with a smaller private jet, or sometimes two if the whole family is going. While the family is used to flying on private jets, the ones commonly depicted on the show and on Instagram are much smaller and therefore less expensive.
The overall cost of chartering a private jet depends on the size of the plane and the flight time.
According to Air Charter Service, those chartering a private plane should expect to pay around $1,300 to $3,000 per flying hour for a smaller jet, $4,000 to $8,000 per flying hour for a "midsize to super-midsize jet," and $8,600 to $13,000 per flying hour for a large private jet.

Kourtney Kardashian also enjoys boating around Italy and other glamorous destinations when she goes on vacation.
According to Charter World, one of Kardashians’ favorite yachts to charter is the "Sealyon" motor yacht, which she rented for a 2016 family vacation across Portofino, Capri, and Ponza. It costs $110,000 per week, not including expenses.
Luxury boats are arguably a staple on most Kardashian-Jenner vacays. On a recent Kylie Skin trip, Kylie and her crew were seen lounging and hanging out on a "Nautique," which costs $1,498.99 per day to charter, according to Boatsetter.
WHERE THEY STAY…
The Kardashians have stayed in some of the most luxurious vacation spots in the world. Here’s how much it would cost to stay in some of these Kardashian-approved hotels, resorts, and more.
During the filming of season six of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," the family set off on a lavish trip to Bora Bora to celebrate the 20th wedding anniversary of then-married Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, as well as commemorate the couple’s vow renewal.
The Kardashian-Jenners stayed in two $5,000-a-night Presidential villas at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui Resort and Spa. According to PR Newswire, the villas the family stayed in are "the only two-story overwater villas in French Polynesia." Each villa features a private pool and deck, as well as 360-degree ocean views. The villas are completely secluded from the rest of the resort, allowing America’s most famous family to truly kick back and relax.
